Torsten is a broughlike viking game.

The game is based on a tutorial by Jeremiah Reid,

Sound effects were made with jsfxr,


Control Torsten with A, D, S, W and cast spells with 1-9.  Alternatively, use mouse or touch device. Monsters will spawn initially, once a treasure is collected, and spontaneously at an increasing rate. The green spiral indicates a spawning monster. The purple door is an exit for the next level. Three collected treasures will give you one new spell. You can move walls by walking into them, if the walls are not blocked by another wall or a monster. Health is represented by the red dots at the base of each character. There is no final goal of the game, besides reaching for the high score.

Lycka till!

(Good luck!)
